I didn't bother to tape The Borgias while I was out of town because I thought they were skipping the holiday weekend. Now, when I get back home (and to my computer), I see snippets online about the Pope's Butler being thrown in prison in the Vatican for stealing documents from his desk, exposing corruption in the Vatican, and suspicions that a rogue Cardinal is behind it all.
It sounds like I missed an episode...oh, wait. That's a news story that broke over the weekend about the latest developments in the 2012 Vatileaks scandal. The references to a papal butler and a detention facility inside the Vatican made me think they couldn't possibly be talking about this century.
